This presentation will include innovations and policy updates in the areas of bridge design and construction for MDOT bridges, along with updates on complex bridge projects MDOT has completed over the past few years such as accelerated bridge construction projects, non-redundant bridge strengthening, segmental bridge strengthening and rehabilitation, structural moves, carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) bridge elements, and the Gordie Howe International Bridge. This presentation will also include information on how bridge projects are funded, and how bridges are inspected, and maintained upon entering service. We will also have a discussion on the findings of the FIU pedestrian bridge collapse, and related recommendations from the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB).
